Abilene reflector

Abilene reflector
Creator: Strother, Berzelius Leslie
Date: September 6, 1883-April 26, 1888
View and search this newspaper by clicking on the Chronicling America link below. This newspaper comes from the collections of the Kansas Historical Society and was digitized with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities as part of the National Digital Newspaper Program. The Abilene Reflector, founded in the latter half of 1883, was an eight-page newspaper published every Thursday. By the early 1880s, Abilene had shed its rough cowtown image of the late 1860s to become a thriving commercial center with a rapidly growing population. In its own words, the paper was "conducted in the interest of the Democratic party, believing the party in its wisdom in the choice of candidates, from county offices to national, is greater than personal feeling or prejudice."

Creator: Reflector Pub.
Date: May 3, 1888-June 28, 1894
View and search this newspaper by clicking on the Chronicling America link below. This newspaper comes from the collections of the Kansas Historical Society and was digitized with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities as part of the National Digital Newspaper Program. The Abilene Weekly Reflector was published from May 3, 1888 until February 21, 1935. Owned by the Reflector Publishing Company, consisting of John J. Cooper as president and Richard Waring as business manager, the Reflector began a new Republican Party affiliation. The new proprietors cited "the universal demand of republicans in this section of the state for a Republican newspaper at Abilene" and began the "anomalous task of converting a Simon-pure democratic paper into a live, progressive republican journal." In 1888, the Reflector became the official paper of Dickinson County, seizing the title from the Abilene Gazette.
